As the Triple J Guam National Youth Football Federation heads into Week 5 this weekend, several games are on tap throughout the island.

On Saturday, the Outlaws and Windward Memorial Hal's Angels are set to kick off at 9 a.m. at Hal's Angels field in Dededo.

With the Barrigada Crusaders not quite ready to assume full-time status, Saturday's other youth football option, the Packers and Crusaders, will play a series of scrimmages in Tiyan.

On Sunday, the Guahan Eagles are set to square off against the Broncos at Eagles Field in Mangilao. In the day's other games, the Steelers will play the Raiders in Tamuning.

High school football

In the game of the week, tonight, the Simon Sanchez High School Sharks will play the Father Duenas Memorial School Friars at George Washington High School at 7 p.m. At 3-0, in the Independent Interscholastic Athletic Association of Guam, the Sharks and Friars remain the only undefeated teams.

With their tried-and-true ground-and-pound offense, the Sharks will set out to do what no other team has done in 43 straight attempts - beat FD.

For the Sharks to be successful, they are going to need big running games from Adin Lumba and Kamerin Toves and they need to find a way to shut down Friars running back Kein Artero. Through three games, Artero has amassed 13 touchdowns.

We have to stop Artero, Lumba said.

“I know FD is going to be tough, but we are going to work hard,” said Kameo Toves, Kamerin Toves' brother.

In the evening's other game, the Guam High School Panthers will host the John. F. Kennedy High School Islanders at 7 p.m. in Agana Heights. While both teams boast 1-2 records, the Islanders have only found the end zone once all season.

Both teams are on a two-game slide.

Originally slated for 10 a.m. Saturday, the George Washington vs. Southern High School Dolphins game has changed time, and location. At 7 p.m., the Geckos and Dolphins will square off at GW.

The Geckos, after falling to the Friars in Week 1, will be looking for their third straight win.

The Dolphins, at 0-2, are going for their first victory.
